Don’t play it safe – make it safe!
A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is different to a heart attack and it doesn’t discriminate – it can hit any age and any fitness level! In fact, 1 in 500 of us are walking around with an undiagnosed heart condition.
Any one of the 30 000 out of hospital Sudden Cardiac Arrests that happen each year in Australia could happen in your workplace
It’s a topic we may not want to talk about, but we can all do something about it.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest can be arrested. If a person has a SCA, the only thing that will re-start the heart is an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED).
*Paediatric pads are not supplied with a workplace package unless specifically requested. If you’re purchasing a Cardiac Science unit for your workplace, the cost is just AUD $2350.
What you need to know about defibrillators
- You cannot harm anyone by using a defibrillator, you can only help save their life.
- The AED works by assessing if there is any electrical rhythm in the heart and if not, the AEDs that Defib For Life issues determine what size of shock is required. The AED automatically issues the shock, leaving no room for doubt.
- In the event of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the only thing that will restart the heart is a shock from a defibrillator.
- The defibrillators we issue are as easy to use as a fire extinguisher, and take up the same amount of space.
